Kylie Jenner 21st Birthday Makeup Collection

Kylie Jenner 21st Birthday Makeup Collection

In case you didn’t know, Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics launched a mega makeup collection for her 21st birthday that is apparently a limited collection and I want in on it.

Kylie’s makeup line has been on my radar for a while especially since I’ve tried her sister’s lipstick collection, KKW Beauty Creme lipsticks, by Kim Kardashian, and was pleasantly surprised at how well made and moisturizing they were so hopefully Kylie’s would be just as good or maybe even better.

e.l.f. Liquid Matte Lipstick

e.l.f. Liquid Matte – Top Drugstore Lipstick?

I’ve tried quite a few drugstore lipsticks but el.f. wasn’t one of them.

My usual purchases from e.l.f include brushes, contour and blush set as well as their lip balms and lip exfoliators so yeah, I have to admit that to me it’s a decent drugstore brand as I frequently purchase their products.

New to my list of e.l.f products is their liquid matte lipsticks. They come in eleven different shades and I purchased four of them online from Ulta.

Back in the day when my coins were scarce, they’re still scarce now but back then they were a lot more scarce,  NYX was one of my favorite makeup brands but somehow I got into the hype of trying other brands and I slowly forgot about them.

But that’s about to change……Read More »
